Tallis Wine

Victoria | Goulburn Valley

Our Review

Fourth-generation farmers Richard and Alice Tallis planted their vineyard on the red volcanic loam soils of their traditional farming property, bringing back viticulture to the Dookie area after its absence for almost 100 years. (In the late 1800s Dookie flourished with expansive vineyards, and at its peak produced one-third of Victoria's wine.) Tallis uses a ‘tread lightly' approach in the vineyard, avoiding sprays and using mulching and composting, with minimum intervention in the winery. -JAMES HALLIDAY
